Learn Bridge in a Weekend - Fast Start Bridge

‘Fast Start Bridge’ is an intensive weekend course for those wanting to learn the rudiments of Bridge at a brisk pace. This is a practical course with a strong emphasis on play. By the end of the weekend you will have learnt the basics of bidding, play and defence enabling you to play Bridge in a social setting at home. You will also be ready to join term 2 of our Bridge for All course for beginners.

The cost of the course is £80 to include tea/coffee and biscuits. Lunch is available in one of the many cafes and restaurants in Summertown or you can bring a packed lunch to eat at the Bridge Club.

Bridge for All - the scheme

Bridge for All is the complete learn and play programme developed for the English Bridge Union (EBU).   All teaching materials and student notes are included in the course fee however students will be expected to purchase the Bridge for All Coursebook covering the whole year and costing £22.   As a bonus, students are given 12 months membership of the English Bridge Union free of charge, which brings a range of benefits. The courses are comprehensive and fun. 

All of our Bridge for All teachers have been trained to teach the course by the EBU. They are members of the EBU Teachers’ Association (EBTA), which provides all the training needed to be a successful teacher. 

Further information can be found on the EBU website

 

Bridge for All courses for Beginners

Our beginners course runs each year starting in the autumn. The course is based on the English Bridge Union’s ‘Bridge for All’ programme, using the Acol bidding system. It is a carefully structured course that starts out by assuming no previous knowledge of cards.    It is also suitable for anyone who has played a little Bridge with friends and wants to learn more.

The most recent course sequence started in October 2018.

This course is open to those who have completed Year 1 of the Bridge for All course and to those with the equivalent knowledge of Bridge. This course is designated as Next Step.
